Have older Gateway system 509GE
XP Home 2002 SP3
Intel Pentium 4 3GHz
System randomly reboots without any BSOD or minidumps. Doesn't appear to
be any rhyme or reason. Originally suspected restart/crash when using
Firefox and accessing audio/radio station but noticed system restart when
unattended and nothing going on.
Have unchecked "Auto Restart" on system fail still no BSOD/Minidump.
Running Speedfan: CPU in middle of operating range. Does spike to about
65-67 C under load which I believe is at high end of normal operating
range. Otherwise sits at about 52 C.
Recently installed 2 GB RAM and additional 700GB hard drive.
Ran memtest86+ but for only 3 passes with no errors.
I do not recall whether system started crashing before or after each of
these additions to the system. I want to say before but cannot say with
Have read on net that it may be a power source but before I go ahead and
purchase larger, would like to know what tests may be run to determine if
it is a PSU.
